Budget cuts

It's your call

October 21, 1991

More than 82 percent of callers to SUNDIAL say county governments should be forced to abide by signed teacher contracts. Only 17 percent agree with a ruling by state Attorney General J. Joseph Curran Jr. that counties can slash teacher pay and make other reductions under a bill cutting $80 million in local aid. The count was 1,120 in favor of the contracts, 238 backing the local jurisdictions' right to make cuts, out of 1,358 callers.

"It's Your Call" represents a sampling of opinions from certain segments of the community, but it is not balanced demographically, as would be done in a scientific public opinion poll.
